Carmichael church volunteers set up stakeout to nab copper thieves

| December 2, 2011

The third time was not a charm for alleged copper thieves who victimized Carmichael Bible Church.

After being targeted overnight Tuesday and Wednesday, three volunteers at the church at 7100 Fair Oaks Blvd., in Carmichael set up a stakeout late Thursday night and early this morning, catching the alleged thieves apparently coming back for a third time.

The stakeout team, which had set up a video surveillance system, caught the intruders in the act and called Sacramento County sheriff's officials, who arrived on the scene around 4:30 a.m. and arrested two people – believed to be a man and a woman.

The identities of those arrested have not yet been disclosed. Sheriff's officials are trying to determine if the pair was involved in the previous two nights of vandalism and theft.

Teaching Pastor Curt Pearson said he first noticed damage in the church air conditioning/heating units area when he showed up at 7 a.m. two days ago.
